Nothing I expectedPros: I never write reviews, but regularly rent cars. I was expecting at least a few criteria to be rock bottom like their prices, but I was happily surprised to have experienced an inclusive work environment where employees care and build immediate repour through candid, friendly and genuine communication - outstanding.Cons: I apologise for pre-judging and presuming, but I’m only human right .. I’ve redeemed myself by writing this review.

Great way to see east coastPros: Pick up was quick, drop off was easier. The insurance through kayak is much more bang for buck, budget even told us this. Their rate was 50 a day and kayaks was 72 for the 9 days. Was a good piece of mind becasue with 1600 miles you never know what can happen
10.0 Excellent31 May 2018
Pros: Last minute reservation with budget. Pick up and check in was quick and easy. Great service and car was economic for duration of the trip.Cons: When checking the vehicle for dents and scratches I preferred if a agent would do a walk around with the person renting the car but they didn’t.

HijackedPros: At reservation pricing was attractiveCons: Re-booking confirmation was not found by Buget/Avis in SYD. Avis rep then hijacked rental and I ended up paying TWICE the quoted rate online from Kayak. Avis//Budget rep also claimed there was no drop off station in the Flinders area (specifically Frankston, but there is). Complete RIPOFF from SYD Int'l Budget/Avis.

5.6 Okay31 Dec 2018
They forgot to install toddler car seatPros: Great car except for seat belt problem and fact that Hertz forgot to install car seat that we requested in writing and verballyCons: So we had to return to pick-up location for car seat. Then when we removed car seat to adjust straps for our four year old we could not get he seat belt to ratchet and lock properly to secure car seat, so we had to return to pick-up location a second time(!) for a service person to help with their tricks for getting this seatbelt to work! Basically it cost us two full hours before leaving on a busy holiday weekend.
8.4 Excellent30 Aug 2017
renting on Australia's east coastPros: The pickup/dropoff went well, especially the help when we returned the car. Car was very comfortable, clean, drove well, and we had no problems.Cons: When we picked up the car, I asked for a map - especially of how to get to the motorway in Sydney. Was told they didn't have any maps. We used our cell gps, but when you go through tunnels service gets dropped (duh) making it a bit stressful about what turn might be next. I was surprised (frustrated) that even a city map was not available in paper form (come on, Hertz!). Next problem was discovered when we got home and I was paying my credit card bills. When my reservation was made, Hertz charged my credit card one day rental costs. But the system never reflected this when renting or returning the car, so I was charged the full amount when dropped off. This is NOT the fault of the return agent, but the Hertz system. I have since sent an email to Hertz and 2 days later still no reply. If this gets resolved, then my rating might go up - but if it takes more work on my part to get resolved, then rating may actually go down. Also, I thought the charge to drop off at a different city was a bit steep - especially since it seemed like more than twice the actual rental cost.
7.6 Good27 Jul 2017
Pros: valueCons: the return place is not easy to find, i spend nearly 1 hour for finding the place to return my car and also the traffic there
7.6 Good7 Jun 2017
Pros: Price was good. Car was as advertised.Cons: I requested a rental at SYDNEY AIRPORT, the pick-up and drop-off was about and hour away from the airport, no shuttle, and cost us $100 to get there by Uber...

Delayed pick up and charged twicePros: The lady working at the counter was very friendly.Cons: i upgraded my car but the new car allocated to me wasn't there. Took a long time for them to bring it around, but didn't update my record with the new pick up time. Dropped it the next day taking the delay into account. They charged me an extra day ($160. talked to manager without any luck. Send their customer support an email but the response said they get back to me in 2 weeks.

SUV was a little bigger than expected but ended upPros: Service was excellent.Cons: Auto Key was very tricky and did't always start on first try. We Had an apparent issue of not understanding the damage report was noted at rental so we took it back and they clarified what was on the report. The issue however is we did not have a direct call number and the national number was not answered. This needs to be addressed for future rentals.
6.0 Good8 Nov 2015
Good car, unexpectedly high price...Pros: I liked the car.Cons: I did not like the price and eventually ended up returning it early (which I had to pay a $30 early-return fee for). I reserved it online for $169.00 but by the time I got to the counter at the airport, I was paying over $600 for the rental for 6 days. I could have rented a GPS (which I needed bc in a foreign country) for $20 a day (pricing is way too high for this) or upgraded for another $10-$11 per day on the car (basically forcing the upgrade). The insurance was around $47 per day which would have put me up to around $870ish for the rental so I opted out of that, which led to being worried the whole time about other drivers who might damage the car in some way, leading me to have to pay for any damage that might have happened (was warned I might have to pay $6000 if damage occurred - higher because of upgrade). This was a vacation and I definitely was not expecting to pay so much for the rental car (money could have gone towards vacation activities). Hertz strikes me as a company that strives to always have the lowest prices on kayak and the other travel sites so they can get max customers in the door and then charge them for everything under the sun after that. I will definitely be comparing prices a little more closely from now on.

6.0 Good22 Jan 2020
Pros: The class of vehicle i booked was not available, yet I was charged the full amount BEFORE being informed that the full size SUV was not available. When I wanted to compare other options and cost, I was told to wait (with a 1 year old baby, after a 14 he flight) and ignored for an hour. Staff was short, rude and not interested in providing information. When I offered to return the nexr day to collect the class of vehicle I booked, that was also declined. I eventually got a smaller car, that forced me to change my family holiday plans, required the use of a second vehicle for 5 days.Cons: I should've received the car I booked, or provided with alternatives. I use Thrifty aften (4 times a year, for about 3 months in total) but will reconsider my options in future

Very in professional I travel to many countries and I will NEVER use them again. Now I have to get my money refunded let see how that goes.

Pros: The front desk was very helpful in making sure our group got the best SUV for our needs. The staff at return was incredibly quick and friendly.Cons: Instructions on which terminal is best for returning cars would have been helpful. We had to take the bus 4km because we dropped off the car at the domestic, instead of the international terminal.

Would rent Thrifty again in SydneyPros: Great pick up and drop off options. Clean car. Great Staff. Very friendly.Cons: I did not like the fact that Kayak did not send reservation confirmation to Thrifty, they still honored it but they had to hustle getting me a car at the pick up location. I also did not like the website info for Drop off. I had to find out on drop off date that Thrifty had a Domestic and International Drop off location with COMPLETELY different procedures.

So far they haven't tried billing me for the damage. I recommend you us a more reputable company.

We need a refund because it was horriblePros: We arrived in Sydney Australia after a long trip, they sixt rental people wree nowhere to be found. All the workers at the airport had never heard of them. The other rental car companies tried to help us but no one knew where Sixt was we went from terminal to terminal with all of our luggage. We called all of the phone numbers listed on our papers but no one answered. When we finally reached a person he said that he could not help us because he was in a different location. He told us to go stand by the curb and maybe by chance a shuttle would show up. We asked him if he could call a shuttle and he said he was too busy. No one ever returned our calls from the messages we left. We emailed Sixt corporate and they didn't respond. After wasting 3 hours trying to connect with Sixt, we took the train to our hotel This experience ruined our time in Sydney. I would recommend that you get us a refund and stop booking for Sixt in Australia. They are definitely not located at the airport as they claim they are.Cons: We arrived in Sydney Australia after a long trip, they sixt rental people wree nowhere to be found. All the workers at the airport had never heard of them. The other rental car companies tried to help us but no one knew where Sixt was we went from terminal to terminal with all of our luggage. We called all of the phone numbers listed on our papers but no one answered. When we finally reached a person he said that he could not help us because he was in a different location. He told us to go stand by the curb and maybe by chance a shuttle would show up. We asked him if he could call a shuttle and he said he was too busy. No one ever returned our calls from the messages we left. We emailed Sixt corporate and they didn't respond. After wasting 3 hours trying to connect with Sixt, we took the train to our hotel This experience ruined our time in Sydney. I would recommend that you get us a refund and stop booking for Sixt in Australia. They are definitely not located at the airport as they claim they are.

Never came...Pros: NothingCons: Waited for two hours and the shuttle never came. Had to rent from a car company on sight at a premium. Would definitely suggest NOT renting from an off site rental car company.
8.8 Excellent14 Jun 2018
Solid rentalPros: The car and service were good. Due to the transition/move of sixt from one Mascot to Banksmedow, we had to use a taxi, although the staff did pay for it. This change was not on our paperwork, but as said, they paid the cab fare. Radio did not work, but van was plenty big for family of 6.

No confirmationCons: No confirmation email but was charged. Need a refund, and where to contact for this type of problem?
2.0 Mediocre11 Jul 2017
Cons: When we landed in Sydney, the shuttle was nowhere to be found. Asked all the other rental car stations, and no one was even aware of a Sixt rental car, so we thought we had been scammed. Very difficult getting hold of customer service, finally got hold of the US one who told us where to go. Walked down the end and still, no shuttle to be found. Called again but they didn't have a number for the AUS Sixt either ("emergency" line was just busy all the time) ONE HOUR later, we got hold of the driver of the shuttle to come get us, took 30 minutes in traffic. Not a good experience.
6.4 Good20 Apr 2017
Branch locationPros: Car was OK, price was good. we were the only ones in the branch so the process was relatively fastCons: the location of the return is not the branch location and its almost impossible to find, took us 40 min to try and get there with all available navigation software with no luck, at the end, i just drove to the branch and wanted to leave it there and then they explained us how to get to the return place. When you take the car they check every scratch which is not a good sign, once they took the car out from the branch, we found more than handful scratches/dents in the car that were "invisible" due to the lights in the branch. When we finally returned it, it took them 15 min to go over the car to validate we did not add any new scratches/dents, good for us we noticed all before we left.

Expected better for the pricePros: The car itself was fun and decent but we were expecting something a little classier for $140/day. Benz or BMW was promised until the booking was finalized on kayak. Suddenly it was a Holden RS6 of better - only matters because it was our last day in Aus after a great trip and it was meant to be surprise to my gf for our final day driving to the blue mountainsCons: Car was gross inside like it had near never been cleaned (could be becuause it was old and had about 60,000 kms ok it. tried to call the store on 2 occasions.. one because I wantedt to swap the car because the value wasnt there and inform them of how gross so I didn't get charged. And again.. because our flight was delayed almost 8 hours and we wanted to get a new rental. Or at least a better deal to keep it... nope, another 140 for less than 8 hours

There is always a problem picking up from Red Spot counter in Sydney ACons: Wait at counter, confirmed car seemed different than booked car. When I asked to change I kept on getting contradictory information from counter agent, and quoted prices continued to change by the second, and it seemed to me I was being up-charged. Uncomfortable, difficult, unprofessional presentation. This is the second time, maybe third, this has occured at the Red Spot counter in Sydney.

Top tips for renting a car in Sydney

  • Excited to rent a car while you vacation in Sydney? If you are landing at Sydney Airport and are coming from abroad, then you will find the hire car desks in Terminal 1’s Arrival Hall. If you are arriving on a domestic flight, the hire car desks can be found in the Arrival Hall for Terminals 2 and 3.
  • As a tourist in Sydney, there’s no reason to be stuck relying on public transportation, if you rent a car the whole region becomes your oyster. For instance, Manly Beach, Blue Mountains National Park, and Royal National Park are just some of the famed locales surrounding Sydney that are easily accessible by car.
  • Travelers new to Australia should watch out for Transit Lanes. Transit Lanes, often designated as T2 or T3, are Australia’s equivalent to a carpool lane, meaning that you must have either 2 or 3 people in your car to use the lane. Transit Lanes are mostly seen on highways, and families should be sure to take advantage of them.
  • Sydney’s morning rush hour normally ranges from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. while the evening rush hour can start as early as 2:30 p.m. and will often last all the way till 7:00 p.m. The extended evening rush hour is due in part to the fact that many of Sydney’s roads are running at capacity. Two roads to avoid in particular during rush hour include Military Road and Parramatta Road, as both can slow to a crawl when experiencing traffic.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Sydney for S$ 34 or less

  • Off-airport rental car locations in Sydney are around 11% cheaper than airport locations on average

  • On average a rental car in Sydney costs S$ 1,202 per month (S$ 40 per day).

  • Sydney features mostly large streets that are suitable for a wide range of vehicle sizes. Drivers shouldn’t have any issues getting around, even if they choose a minivan or SUV. It is worth mentioning, though, that streetside parking is often necessary, and this will be done more easily in a small vehicle.

  • For the main urban areas in Sydney, drivers will see speed limits ranging from 30 km/h (18 mph) in mixed-use urban areas, 40 km/h (25 mph) in the central downtown area and in areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic, and up to 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban roads.

  • Australia has only moderately expensive fuel costs, especially in comparison to Europe. In general, drivers will find that petrol costs around AU$4.82 ($3.50) per gallon in Sydney. One thing to note, though, is that petrol will be purchased in liters, not gallons.

  • Parking in Sydney is not too difficult to find except in Sydney’s central business district. Sydney’s CBD has scarce streetside parking and, when it can be found, is quite expensive. The best option for parking in the CBD is to take advantage of one of the various parking garages and then to go out on foot and use public transport from there.
